    we fish from a boat at night We have lights that we turn on to land fish.It seems that fish go crazy when they get close to the boat or is it the lights that spook them? has anyone ever tried useing colored lights to land a fish? we've used red lights to hunt with a night. I have many colors of plastic film that we use in our stage lights.. anyone ever tried colored lights?

    we use black lights on the boat and have white lights mounted on the sides. when we get one on, just flip a switch. I know what you mean about tripping on the bait bucket. last summer we took my buddys new bass boat out he about fliped when I brought out the liver (he keeps it cleaner than a hospital) well I got one on, the next thing I knew I had flattend the liver box, it looked like a killing had took place on his boat. :big_smile:

    hope your buddy is still your buddy. I don't have carpet in my boat for that very reason. We like to fish a small river close to home. At night the big cats are about 20 feet out and in 2 feet of water. Do you think they would see that black light?

    For low level illumination without attracting bugs try the green diode type rope lights.

    Do blacklights attract bugs? I've only used them in the fall for haunted attraction scenes. Never used them fishing.
